Last night my 6 yr old was crying in bed. I went to comfort him (he almost never cries) and he told me "I don't get any respect in this family". Really, my tiny little Rodney Dangerfield? No respect huh? Boy, I could have told a story about how I feel the same, but instead I asked what would make him feel like he was being respected. He said "a cookie". When I was done I said to the Hubby (who has been MIA for over a week and just got home that night), I want a cookie, I went and ate two cookies (we had only found the cookie hiding place a few hours before). Then I went to bed sad and feeling worthless. Stepped on the scale this morning to see my weight back up 2 lbs. I know two cookies doesn't explain 2 lbs, but it does show my mindset and lack of willpower. There has been small things, the wrong crackers, a few chips, there was a jelly bean incident and it all adds up. Or could be that I'm hormonal and that explains EVERYTHING! That is probably it.
The best part of this week has been my Sister M. I hope she doesn't mind me telling the world that she lost an amazing 7.5 lbs this. It is her first week back on the Belly Fat Cure after a year of not dieting. W00t! She read my blog post last week, and right there on the spot decided to start. That is a HUGE thing for her. So proud! She is my inspiration now.
My weigh in is Monday mornings. I do that to really help keep me true over the weekends. I'll post a chart so you can see how my weight fluctuated this week. I'm really hoping it will go back down by then :( If you struggled this week, leave a comment and us know how you overcame it. Inspire me, I need it!
I'm making an Angry Birds cake today, but I won't eat any of it. The Hubby was gone for his birthday and was part of that big announcement this week (you can now play Angry Birds right from you computer! Click here to do it!) so we thought this would be fun. I'm also making a Japanese themed sushi meal for the dinner. I've never done that, so it should be interesting!
